    To transfer a CD to my shuffle, I first convert and transfer the audio files to computer then drag and drop them to my shuffle. Having no need for the files on my computer I delete them. When i delete them out of my library, they are also automatically removed from my shuffle... IS THERE ANY WAY TO AVOID THIS?!?! settings, 3rd party software, anything!

    its a hassle and takes longer transferring music from a CD->computer->shuffle. is there any way to transfer music on a CD directly to the shuffle??? any way to do it at all?? i have a zen micro also and the software it comes with has this somewhat basic feature- ripping a CD straight to the device. no way to do it with itunes!?!? im really beginning to hate apple and wish i never purchased their product.
    someone help! thanks- ross

    1:Yes, but I'm too tired to look for it. You should get prompted before anything gets deleted off of your iPod. Try syncing-unplug shuffle-delete. Then when you sync again, it should prompt you.
    2: Not that I know of.

    It migh be possible if you use the Shuffle as a removable drive -- mount it, mount the CD, use extraction software (choose one of the many) to extract the audio directly to the Shuffle/USB drive.

    Not owning an iPod, I can't say if Apple has put up intentional barriers against this, but it seems straightforward enough.
